Multitrack recording coming to the Rodecaster Pro podcast production console
The Rodecaster Pro, the all-in-one podcast production console, will receive a significant update next month that will introduce a new interface and also multitrack recording.
Firmware Update 1.1.0 will be available in February and existing users will be able to update their Rodecaster Pro to this latest version.
All new units purchased in 2019 will feature the update.
Rode says the update will also make the user interface more “user friendly” which will make the device even easier to use, especially for newcomers to the world of podcasting.
The most interesting addition with this update will be multitrack recording which will be able to record up to 14 tracks including:
– a stereo ‘live mix’ track, as featured on the Rodecaster Pro since its release
– a mono track for each of the four microphone inputs.-
– a stereo track each for the USB, 3.5mm TRRS, Bluetooth and sound pad channels.
When the update is done, users can activate multitrack recording through the Advanced Settings in the hardware section of the Rodecaster Pro’s touchscreen interface.
A single switch on this menu can then engage Multichannel for multitrack recording.
The reception of the Rodecaster Pro has been exceptional,” says Freedman Group CEO, Damien Wilson.
“The Rodecaster Pro is a world-first – a complete game-changer that has revolutionised podcast production.
“People who have only dreamed of podcasting are now able to do so, thanks to the simplicity of the Rodecaster Pro.
“But for us, launching the product was never the finish line. We continue to refine and improve the software features of the Rodecaster Pro, with the first significant upgrade being the addition of multitrack recording.
“Whether you choose to mix live or edit in post, the Rodecaster Pro is the perfect solution for EVERY podcaster.”
